    There are a number of games I really enjoy more on the Fire...

    Majesty: The Fantasy Kingdom simulator (which is now available properly) I really like except it sometimes just quits on me, annoying so I save every few minutes. But it really works well on the fire screen.

    Even though I was annoyed at paying for it again as a separate version I really like Plants vs Zombies as well.

    FieldRunners isn't my favorite tower defense, but it does look incredible on the Fire.

    Non-game apps I use and really enjoy:

    AndChat (sideloaded). There's an IRC chat I like to hang out in while watching football (football outsiders), and andchat lets me do this very well, no need for the laptop now while watching in my living room.

    Go Launcher - I still primarily use the kindle launcher, but Go is great for those times when I want it more android-like.

    Nook Reader - I use this for epub documents, of which I had a number. Installed via getjar.

    Since I've spent more time rooting (and unbricking) my KF rather than reading on it my favorite app is Root Manager. I've also added:
    Swiftkey X keyboard
    Titanium Backup
    Dolphin Browser
    and my second favorite, Go Launcher EX

    i have tried to root mine but can't seem to do it. Can you walk me through it? I must be doing something wrong. I need precise directions.

    Tohio how do you use Titanium Backup on the KF without a SD slot???

    Is there a way you can direct Titanium Backup to use a drive on the PC(With the KF hooked up to the PC)?

    Dolphin HD is a must have. Faster and more options than the Silk.
